Intelligent Construction Documentation

A BIM Workflow

The Built Sector has moved from an Era of Drafting (CAD) to an Era of Information-rich Modeling and Collaboration (BIM). Sophisticated BIM Modeling/Authoring tools - such as Revit - can do much more than generic 3D Modeling. But one of the biggest challenges for professionals seeking to move away from their traditional CAD environments is understanding how to create construction documents properly in a BIM setting. This course will practically take you through a comprehensive documentation workflow in Revit.

What You Will Learn

Upon the completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Produce a complete Building Documentation Set

  • Utilize your CAD detail library in a BIM environment

  • Improve overall efficiency for your team on documentation

  • Establish company-wide standards for your documentation

  • Improve turnaround time by automating detailing and annotations
